She tilted her head slightly to the left then she locked her lower lip between her thumb and index while looking at the ground . She looked deeply in thought.
Then, she lifted her head in one move as to meet my eyes with her seductive gaze.
I was drowning in her face and her every gesture that i couldn’t hear what she whispered. But something like the words of love lightly brushed my ears.
She stood there all flushed and waiting.
I didn’t know what to say as i didn’t hear what she said but i gathered my courage and risked my chances and confessed my love for her.
« I love you » i said
She looked shocked to hear the words i uttered.
Right at that moment, my heart sank to my feet, beating wildly irregularly, trembling in fear.
but that fear quickly dissipated when she raised her hands up to cover her face. The one that had a hint of a smile cover it.
She humphed and released a sight of relief and lowered her hands to face me with a warm smile.
